Rejoice in your youth

Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment. Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity. - Ecclesiastes 11:9-10

Though we live in a terribly broken world God did not intend for us to live a life of drudgery. This passage is a reminder to enjoy the life we have while we can,

That’s a wonderful truth for all of us. God wants us to enjoy the time He gives us. Here He specifically says ‘rejoice O young man in your youth’ and that is something young people need to remember. But I think the principle is true for us all. Enjoy the time we have because the years are passing by and soon they will be done. Don’t put things off until tomorrow. Use the time we have.

But enjoying is only half of the story. That is not the important things here. There is something to remember while we enjoy. More anon.
